Is Self Care
Surround yourself with plants you can grow with.
Plants with Benefits
Plants can instantly beautify a space, but did you know they can also contribute to your wellbeing? The presence of plants can boost your mood and reduce your stress levels – bringing tranquility to your space – while also producing oxygen and filtering the air you breathe. A writer from The New York Times recently reflected on plant care as a form of self care, and we couldn’t agree more: “The mornings when I took care of my plants became the most manicured aspect of my life. I spritzed, watered and pruned them; I murmured encouragement to unfurling new leaves.”
It’s true when we say Plants Make People Happy. The Sill makes it easy for you to find the perfect plant and begin your journey to plant parenthood. Our mission is to make the experience of shopping for plants as wonderful as the plants themselves.
Mood boosting, stress reducing
When you feel a little low, it’s amazing what a walk in the park can do. That’s because when we get in touch with nature, we reduce mental fatigue and stress, while increasing relaxation and self-esteem. Studies have shown even brief exposure to nature can make us more altruistic and cooperative, and that touching real foliage can elicit an unconscious calming effect.
Therapeutic to care for
Whether your plant passion is a solo endeavor or you find yourself building bonds with fellow plant lovers – that feel-good feeling plants give you won’t go unnoticed. Especially as we spend more time indoors, we are reminded how calming it is to care for our plants, and what their growth can tell us about our own.
Easy on the eyes
Houseplants are a key design element in any room. Nothing contributes lightness, warmth and style to a space the way plants do. They provide the perfect architectural element and anchor a space in an organic way. And no matter your personal design aesthetic, a dose of green is a universally chic color choice. There are no set rules when it comes to decorating with plants, only a thousand possibilities.
From Our Founder
Our founder Eliza Blank likes to say, “checking in on my plants is like a good look at the mirror – if your plants are suffering, it could be symptomatic of something else going on in your life.” Plants truly create time and space to nurture yourself. And if you’re not making time for your plants, you’re probably not making time for yourself. Hot tip: it’s impossible to care for your plants well without two free hands – that means put your phone down!Shop Now
